It Lies Within are currently on “The 11th Plague Tour” with My Heart To Fear (see remaining dates below), and the band are giving us a look inside what they’re up to. Check out the first tour diary entry below.
Tour Diary #1
It’s been awhile since we’ve had the chance to write an actual written entry. Pretty cool with video kind of taking over these days. We wanna start by thanking those who join us on this ride.
The 11th Plague tour has started off with bang! First show was at a new venue for us called Realm in Toledo, OH. Even being from Michigan, Ohio has always treated us well. This is music not college football right?
Second day of the 11th Plague Tour was an epic mini festival where our tour met up with our good friends in Tear Out The Heart’s tour also. This show was insane with both tours playing the same event. The venue shares space with a comic book collectible store so we all just “nerded” out before the show. But the best part was seeing our amazing super friend, fan, now family member Rachael who has supported us for the past 2 years strong!
After this amazing show the fun definitely doesn’t stop. We performed day three at The Ritz back in our home state of the “mitten” / Michigan. As a headliner for ILW, this was one of our best shows here yet. All the locals promoted like crazy and on top of our tour package the draw was just awesome!

Next, was a day off on Monday. We were stoked to host My Heart To Fear in our hometown and show them some good times and even better food. Fuel for our fire!
Bada Brew in Joliet, IL was next and we absolutely love this venue. Our Chi-town family always spoils us. This is definitely a top 10 market for ILW so it’s always exciting to come back. There was an after party at Harrah’s Casino which lasted almost the entire night. That’s Rock N Roll right?
Next was Milwaukee, WI which our main goal was to find some CHEESE. We ended up at a Beef Jerky Outlet that sampled all the free jerky you can eat and also had some amazing cheese curds. This got us all prepped for our show at Shorty’s Hall. The fans showed up and threw down like expected.
Last but not least in this portion is our love for our die hard fans! We can’t express how much fun we have when invited to hang out afterwards. Here is our family tour photo from our friends Tina, Becky, and Sonja. Thank you all so much! Stay tuned for part II of the 11th Plague Tour.
